Homeopathic side effects or sensivity

Hi friends,
2 years ago I went to a homeopath practioner. She analysed my personality and sympthoms and she recommended me to take Lycopodium Clavatum 30C, Nat Mur 30c, Gelsemium 30C and NUx Vom 30C.
I took those medicines for 3 months, 4 times a days. They helped me a lot in my mind and emotional problems. But they make my digestive system very confused. During the treatment every time I ate fat food (like cheese, bread with butter, olive oil on salad, ect) I got sick (nausea). So I had to stop the treatment and the nausea stopped. My question is: Have you heard about that before that when someone took Lycopodium, Nux Vom, Nat Mur or Gelsemium it make you sick, nausea or even vomiting? Should I take them in a lower potency?
Thanks for any reply

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You had too many remedies at one time.
One or more of them was causing 'proving'symptoms, that
is a condition that you never had, the nausea. Bc you had
so many remedies there is no way to tell what was helping
and what was not, what needed to be stopped, etc.

You need to go to another homeopath, who does more
classical type prescribing, one remedy at a time.And also,
after you have had that many remedies for 3 months, you
have to be looked at again to see what is needed at this
time, bc things change and prescriptions have to be

If she recommended to take all these remedies at the same time, she was not practicing classical homeopathy, rather her own version.

In my view your problems are a result of that. Stop all the remedies for a month and then if some symptoms remain, seek treatment from a classical homeopath who will ask these questions and give just one remedy.

To select a homeopathic remedy for any health problem, the patient has to be like an open book. As if talking to oneself and alone. Explain with detail what your problems are. Example answers are given in front of the questions. Please take guidance from these examples and reply in detail accordingly.

Remember, we don’t know and will never know your identity so be fully truthful when answering these question so that we can help you towards regaining full health.

1. Describe your appearance & age (example answer: I am a 30 yr old male, stick thin or I am big for my size and overweight I have not always been like this I grew fat after……)

2. What are the symptoms of your health problem (Constipation, Swollen & painful joints of elbow, knees and wrists…)

3. How & when did this problem begin (it began 3 years back when I was very tense due to a divorce….)

4. What makes the problem better or worse (Constipation gets worse when I eat rice, it gets better when I sleep a lot……. the swelling gets less when I sleep or eat meat, it gets more when I walk.)

5. How do you feel emotionally (I feel sad & depressed, thinking about suicide. Think about all bad things happened in the past. I like to be alone all the time. I hate being with people…..)

6. Describe your personality (I am a headstrong person, very suspicious of others, very strict about discipline…. OR I am a messy person, not interested in cleaning. Don’t bathe for many days…..)

10. How is your sleep (I have great sleep, always wake up fresh…..)

11. Do you have any recurring dreams (I always dreams of big black snakes very regularly….)

Hi simone and fitness. Thank you for your help. The thing is the last 6 months I tried again to use the same remedies but separately. So I tried the Lyc Clav 30C, 4 times/day, for 3 days, and got the same symthom: nausea and headache. Then after 1 month I tried Nux Vom 30C for 2 days and got sick(nausea) again and I stopped.

Many thanks

When you answer the questions Fitness will help you out.

It can also be just too many doses for your system.

How is the nausea etc when not taking remedies?
